September Twenty Second…

happy fall yall

I was off again today… I made sure son2 got up and out the door but then I went back to bed til it was time to get son3 up… Son3 is having his school carnival this week so it has been theme week… I didn’t get the newsletter til Tuesday so we missed Monday Jersey Day… Tuesday was Crazy Sock Day and today was Crazy Hair/Hat Day… Tomorrow is Mismatch Day, hubby will dress him so not a problem, just kidding… and Friday is Spirit Day and the carnival… son3 put gel in his hair for crazy hair day… at first he wanted it sticking up but then he wanted it all combed down flat… I forgot to get a picture…

Due to hubby not having a job at the moment it is a perfect excuse to not have to go to the carnival this year… We feel bad for son3 but then son3 has been going to the carnival since he was born, son2 went to the same school… and the carnival is the same every year… they were going to cancel this year due to very low involvement but for some reason they did not… Meanwhile two of son3’s friends who are brothers want him to spend the night this weekend so if that works out then he will be distracted from the carnival…

Hubby spent a bit of time on the computer job hunting and a bit of time working in the yard and a bit of time working on the computer on his artwork…

I checked email, put a roast in the crock pot, put up Fall decorations, started the dishwasher, cleaned the glass on the entertainment center, shredded papers, vacuumed, and sorted through all the paper piles on my work table… Watched Emergency and hubby watched an episode of Babylon 5… It was early day so walked to pick up son3, put potatoes and lima beans on to cook for dinner, did homework with son3, typed up my entry for The Motivation Station for tomorrow, ate dinner, hubby and the boys were watching F Troop and I washed all the pots and pans…

Now son2 is on the computer, son3 has showered and I am going to give him a practice test for his spelling words, hubby is on the computer working on his artwork… son1 came straight home from work so he and son2 could go for their walk… then he was off to his part time job to turn in more paper work and now he is at girlfriend’s…

Now I am testing son3 and waiting for Criminal Minds to come on…

I forgot to mention so I came back and added this paragraph to mention about unemployment... Nothing came today so I went to the website, although I checked before and didn't find anything that there had to be a way to check your account/status... the first time I could only find sign in stuff for job hunting... this time however I found a phone number you could call to create a pin number to call in and check the status on your checks... so called and got that set up and it said that it takes ten days from talking to the representative to receive your check... so hubby's phone interview was on the 13th so ten working days is this Friday or next Monday... so at least now we have a guide and something to call to track status...

Today I ate: vitamins, water… breakfast~apple and cinnamon oatmeal… lunch~bowl of beans, cornbread, cola… chocolate covered raisins… dinner~pork roast, potatoes, lima beans, biscuits, water…

Happy Journaling…

that's good you got that tracking info from unemployment, at least you know when to possibly expect something. school carnivals are so predictable, aren't they? always a bean bag toss, some type of fishing game, etc. I'm sure son3 would enjoy the sleepover more :)

I think it is so neat son1 and son2 are exercising to get in shape for firemen/paramedics and it is neat they are doing it together!

We have a carnival at our school every year but due to the economy we have only attended once. My kids beg to go each year. I feel badly we haven't been able to squeeze it out of our budget. Since you have gone in other years past, I think the sleepover will be a great trade off. Great news about being able to track that check!!

I remember your posts and pictures of the carnival from other years. They are fun for the kids but like you say your son has been going for many years already. Lots of people are cutting back on things like that. The gal who cut my hair said their business has been very slow as it's one of the things people are cutting back on too. Little things like that add up after awhile. I hope your Thursday is a great one!
